    Oh, no. I got the earworm just by hearing the word Boinga.

    Love those Backyardigans, though.

    I had had no idea what you were talking about so I made the mistake of clicking on the link….and listening to the whole song.

    Gotcha. Boinga = smurf – except it has a song. Although, I don’t think smurf was used as noun (except, you know, for Smurfs themselves)

    *I* love this song, so much that my four-year-old says, “No singing, Mommy!” when it comes on.

    Those Backyardigans are so clever!!

    Boinga… the swiss army knife of words: noun, verb, adjective AND it makes Julienne fries!

    @Jana J. Hanson
    Yeah, my kids always shush me when the Backyardigans are in full song mode… which is about every 15 seconds on the show. Constant earworm contagion 😉

    We’ve been hooked on that boinga song for a long, boinga time. Welcome to boinga.

    We’re well familiar with “Boinga” here. It’s almost as useful as the word “marklar” which, coincidentally, also hails from outer space.

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
